    Are you unplugging it and then plugging it right back in? If the charge is 95% or above, it will not charge.

    First off: battery gauges are just not that accurate IMO detailing the state of charge to the 1% level is meaningless - gas tanks don't list % full either. Secondly you wouldn't want Lithium chemistries to charge to 100% it kills them relatively quickly.

    I don’t understand. What is your current battery life? Right now...
